Kingman, Ariz – A Mesquite, Nevada resident has been found not guilty for the alleged sexual abuse of a woman in Beaver Dam late last June. A Mohave County Superior Court jury deliberated for roughly an hour before finding Pedro Galeanna, 43, not guilty of sexual abuse.

Defense attorney Shawn Hamp said the state had no evidence of the alleged sexual abuse against his client

Prosecutor Doug Camacho said Galeanna made advances upon the alleged victim, after responding to a request to bid an auto salvage job. Camacho said Galeanna touched the woman improperly and coerced her to touch him in a private area as well.

Defense attorney Shawn Hamp said the state had no evidence or corroboration of the alleged sexual abuse. He told the jury the state did not meet its burden of proof in what he called a “he-said, she-said” case.

The not guilty verdicts were returned when the two day sexual abuse trial concluded June 18.
